General tropes

As an Idol


    Dorothy and Leona West

Voiced by: Azuki Shibuya (Dorothy), Yuki Wakai (Leona)

A pair of twins who initially tried out for Mirei's unit and failed to secure a spot after this when Mirei refused to ditch Laala to join them. Since then Dorothy has held a grudge and agreed to join the equally hostile Usagi, who was upset over his recent loss of Sophie to them. Their parents run an Okonomiyaki shop that competed with Papa's Pasta. The twins are Pop-type Idols who use the brand Fortune Party.

General Tropes

  • But Not Too Foreign: Their father is a Canadian.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Dorothy is light blue while Leona is pink.
    • In some coords, Dorothy's theme color will be dark blue while Leona has red.
  • Curtains Match The Windows: Although their eyes are darker in shade this still applies.
  • Hopeless Auditionees: In Episode 11, Mirei and Kuma are happy that Dorothy offers herself to join their group. The next episode though, they learn Dorothy was bringing along Leona, her twin and insists they both join as a two-in-one deal. They get rejected as a result, as the Sparkling Grand Prix event only allows units of three idols to compete.
  • Identical Twin ID Tag: Apart from the hair and eye colors, Leona has a mole under his left eye.
  • Masculine Girl, Feminine Boy: Dorothy is the girl, but her color scheme is blue, is something of a Tomboy with a Girly Streak and refers herself with masculine pronouns, while Leona is the boy, but his color scheme is pink, is feminine and refers himself with feminine pronouns.
  • Pink Girl, Blue Boy: A reversed case!
  • Polar Opposite Twins: Leona is calm, sensitive and quiet, while Dorothy is abrasive and an extrovert.

Dorothy Tropes

  • Bokukko: Dorothy always uses "boku" when referring to herself.
  • Gamer Chick
  • Genki Girl: She is naturally energetic and tries to display this side of herself towards the fans.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Dorothy, aside of being whiny and abrasive, is a good person by heart.
  • The Fake Cutie: Possibly. To fans and those she wants to win over, she is able to turn on the charm as The Tease. But those who know Dorothy are well-aware of her hostile attitude.
    • It was also noted in her first appearance she came off as being really nice and friendly until Mirei rejected her and Leona.
  • The Lad-ette: Dorothy is a bit young for the trope, but still applies.
  • Revenge: After getting rejected by Mirei, Dorothy sought out retribution from her group. She tends to be very petty in general.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Shion when she took charge of their unit and proved to be more talented despite being new. Over time this lessened.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Due to her rough personality Dorothy comes off as a tomboy in comparison to the other girls and her twin brother. However, she has no complaints in wearing cutesy clothing or using her natural girls charm.
    • This is also displayed in the coords she and Leona wear. While Leona's will provide a skirt, her versions usually include shorts or pants.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Light blue

Leona Tropes

  • Ambiguously Bi: While he may admire Meganii to the point of an implied crush, he does show interest in Sophie in the live musical continuity.
  • Beauty Mark: Leona has a mole beneath his left eye.
  • Camp Gay: Leona is heavily implied to have a crush on Meganii. In the Valentine's Day episode he even wanted to give him glasses made from chocolate. In fact, he did so twice throughout the series.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: Leona is so feminine that people tend to see him as a girl, often leading to funny situations.
  • Extreme Doormat: To his sister, who he normally agrees with at all times- to the point it is part of his catchphrase.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Leona, despite being a boy, has a name that's considered feminine in pretty much any culture in which the name pops up.
  • Not So Different: Grew a bond with Sophie after they spoke to each other and realized they had a lot in common.
  • The One Guy: Leona is the only guy Pripara user in the series.
    • By Idol Time PriPara, he's not the only one, due to the introduction of WiTH, but he remains the only boy in a girl's unit.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: Easily nicer and more reserved than his sister.
  • She's a Man in Japan: The Korean dub removed all mentions of Leona's gender and recolored his uniform necktie.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Official translation for Leona's name is "Reona", which is noticeable with his coords as they use an R, instead of an L.
  • The Quiet One
  • Wholesome Crossdresser
